Good morning folks:
Happy New Year to all.
I have placed my search for a Pantera on hold until later on in the Spring, for I too have grown very skeptical about the offers and descriptions of some of these cars. Until I am fully satisfied after driving and inspecting the vehicle I will not drop a cent, this is how I have done it in the past and I have not been wrong in my decisions.
I have several cars in mind (Panteras) and non Panteras. I really appreciate to see all this input for it strengthen my position about my decision making process.
I agree with many of your postings that a salesman ought to be as honest and concise as he/she can when describing a car; lying or flowering the car with extraneous adjectives will only deflate the interest of the buyer. I recently exchanged several lengthy emails with Mike Drew and he reinforced my position 200%, thanks Mike for your integrity.
